Women's Health & Wellness
What Is Women's Health?
Women's experience of health and disease differs from those of men, due to unique biological, social and behavioral conditions. Additionally, women's life expectancy is greater than that of men, regardless of race and geographic region.
Unique female issues include pregnancy, menopause, and conditions of the female organs. Women experience many unique health issues related to reproduction and sexuality and these are responsible for a third of all health problems experienced by women during their reproductive years (ages 15–44).
Despite the differences, the leading causes of death in the United States are remarkably similar for men and women. However, women and men have different experiences of the same illnesses; especially cardiovascular disease, cancer, depression and dementia, and women are more prone to urinary tract infections than men.
Women and men have approximately equal risk of dying from cancer. However, the incidence of different cancers varies between women and men. In the United States the three most common types of cancer of women are lung, breast and colorectal cancers.
Many women will experience mental health issues over their lifetime. Women are at higher risk than men from anxiety, depression, and stress-induced complaints.
In the United States, women have depression twice as often as men. The risks of depression in women have been linked to changing hormonal environment, including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. Additionally, women metabolize drugs used to treat depression differently than men.
One-third of all personal care products contain one or more ingredients classified as possible human carcinogens.
89% of 10,500 ingredients used in personal care products have NOT been evaluated for safety.
Over the last 30 years, only 9 of the 10,500 ingredients used in personal care products have been banned or restricted.

Remove Toxins From Your Daily Life for Optimum Health & Wellness
In order to combat what our chemical happy society has unleashed and to maintain optimum Health & Wellness, avoid products that contain the toxic ingredients that can harm your health and the environment, and choose products made with natural and organic ingredients instead.
If you use mainstream products on a daily basis, odds are you may develop one or more skin conditions like rashes, acne, dermatitis or eczema. Additionally, a more serious health condition could evolve from prolonged exposure to the unhealthy toxins found in every-day products! This severely impacts not only physical wellness, but other dimensions of health and wellness also!
This is because nearly two-thirds of all commercial, and some of the "so-called" natural, product lines contain a toxic cocktail combination of:
- Carcinogens - Directly promote and facilitate cancer growth
- Teratogens - Cause birth defects
- Reproductive Toxins - Harm and impair male & female fertility
- Developmental Toxins - Cause adverse effects on fetal development
- Skin/Sense Organ Toxins - Cause irritation, rashes & dermatitis
- Allergenic Toxins - Cause allergic reactions
- Mutagens - Alter genetic information-DNA
